Memories Timeline


  1. So sad to here of Garry’s death. I met and worked with Garry since 1984 where we worked side by side at MPS. He was a highly intelligent person and a great all around guy. I’ll always remember he liked Mr. G’s potato chips and I would constantly steal a handful when he wasn’t around!!! I think he knew! Rest in peace Garry. Your friend, Rick

  2. Rest In Peace cousin. I will remember the time you were stationed in California and your visit. The family reunion in Milwaukee,where you gave me a tour of your home and said I would always be welcome. Rest in Heaven.

  3. Garry was a good Friend from North Division, Captain of our bowling team and very protective of those in need . Big Brother who treated me like his little Sister ❤️ . I’m going to really miss his smile , humor and protection. Fly high El Capitan , you will be missed 🙏🏾🕊💔

  4. I am so sorry for the loss of my friend Gary. I worked every day with Gary at the arena and I always looked forward to spending hours together in conversation in the VIP tunnel about everything from the Bible to home repair while checking in the team and support personnel. Well, I fully expect if there is ever anything that needs a true leader or even home repair in heaven, God has the right man for the job. My condolences to Helen and family. You are all in my prayers. My love goes out to you all and I truly share in your sorrow.

  6. Wishing You the ability to find the Happiness of Good Memories through these times Dear Cousin Helen. Garry is at Peace.

  7. When I got into bowling at Red Carpet Lanes back in ’97 Gary was one of the three individuals that I called “Unc”. He would always give me pointers on improving my game and encouraging me to do better. When he found out that I also was a Marine veteran, we often shared our experiences serving in the military. I’m still having a hard time believing that he was called home. But he will always be my “Unc”. Rest in heavenly peace my friend. #SemperFi

  8. Gary was a great human being and a true leader sometimes could be tough on people but always wanted to be organized and very straightforward on what he exspected of me and other people. The world lost great person and only God chooses great people to be in his kingdom and Gary was one of those.
